Doors open 9.30. Admission $5 You will need to bring your lunch, a mug, hand sewing and show and tell. There will be lots of scrummy things for morning and afternoon tea. Waverley members don’t forget your plate of goodies.
The invited speaker is Anna Farago, a Melbourne visual artist and teacher. Her current work investigates the use of feminist art making traditions including embroidery, quilting, natural dyeing, stitched text and patchwork within a contemporary art practice. The works explore my connection with memory and place. Read more about her here

Shops in attendance: Sewn and Quilted, Lilypatches, Can Do Books, Craftpaks and Sewing Connection.
There will be lots of time for sewing, chatting, shopping and viewing the displays which celebrate the 35 years of Waverley Patchworkers.
